iCareers, is your one stop virtual career center. It offers you quick access to the best online career tools for identifying jobs & internship opportunities, networking with alumni, and researching career options. While we have many resources on our website, here are the ones that we consider, “go to.”
Job & Internship Search
Ithaca College uses Handshake to post thousands of job, internship, fellowship and volunteer opportunities provided by our employer partners each year. It has an intuitive and robust, modern interface, that will greatly enhance your ability to find opportunities.

CareerShift is an online career management tool that helps you identify job and internship opportunities, networking connections, potential companies of interest, and work with the data in an integrated manner.

The Alumni Directory is a database maintained by the Office of Alumni Relations that is designed to allow students and alumni to connect with more than 50,000 IC alumni throughout the country for information regarding their professional and regional interests. Using the 'Advanced Search' option allows you to search by career related interests and other parameters to identify appropriate contacts. *Please note that the Office of Alumni Relations has recently updated their website, including the Alumni Directory. Currently, only IC alumni can login to the Alumni Directory, by using their Netpass login information. Current students can visit Career Services to use the Alumni Directory with assistance from Career Services staff.
IC Mentoring Network
Connect with alumni through online group forums on LinkedIn, including 12 industry-specific subgroups. You can ask questions about careers, life after college and more. You can find alumni through these subgroups whom you may wish to develop a mentoring relationship with (in addition to the online discussions).
